I did not know that Knitty.com was gone at all, but if people say it is back it is back then. One of my favorite patterns from the site is the Tychus Hat, by Brooke Higgins, she is a Genious; worked on short rows and vertical stripes This one in particular I am using Aurora 8 Merino wool and only using a single strand instead of the double strand it calls for. It is one of the fastest knits I have found and it comes out very nicely. You can always add on stuff, like a ribbing, and or change the way that bind off. I am done with the hat, and I am working on the ribbing, when I get done I will be updating the picture, in the meantime here is what I had yesterday morning. Thanks for stopping by.
